To be the man on a losing team or be a side piece on a winning team. It has been a question players have asked themselves for years.
Chris Bosh didn’t have to join the Miami Heat, he could have stayed in Toronto or went to another franchise and been their #1 or #2 at least, but he decided to join the South Beach NWO. Even though he is the Michelle Williams to LeBron and D Wade, Beyonce and Kelly Rowland, he is more famous and has a ring because of his sacrifice.
“I always thought about being The Man,” said Chris Bosh, who then invoked a name greater than his alpha-and-omega teammate. “I always wanted to be Jordan. That’s what I wanted to be.”
“One thing I’ve learned since I’ve been here is what you really have to sacrifice in order to be on a winning team,” said Bosh. “
“I had to reprogram myself,” he admitted. “You have to submerge yourself in the team, and sometimes it’s doing things you don’t want to do. It’s whatever the team needs, and usually you have to listen to your coach to know what the team needs. You can’t be like, well, this is what I’m going to do to help this team. It doesn’t work like that.”
Bosh made the right decision and the Heat wouldn’t have been in the last two NBA Finals and favored to make it again without him.
He will be more appreciated after the Heat finished their run.

ALL FALLS DOWN
No player in the NBA is more gratuitous when it comes to flopping than the Miami Heat’s LeBron James.
MIAMI In a 18-minute briefing with the media Wednesday, Miami coach Erik Spoelstra used the word competition or a variation of it 23 times.
If you get the idea Spoelstra didnt feel his team competed as well as it could have in Tuesdays 99-92 loss at Indiana, you would be right.

MEET ME AT MOUNT EVEREST
Game 4 of the NBA Eastern Conference Finals between the Miami Heat and Indiana Pacers featured one of the best blocks of the playoffs. Late in the 3rd quarter, Lebron James got way above the rim to block George Hill‘s layup attempt. The post Lebron James’ Monster Block On George Hill appeared first on Ride The Pine.
Not much you can say after this happens to you.
Now, this is a blocked shot.
LeBron James tallied a rejection rarely seen outside of video games Tuesday night, swatting a fast break layup attempt by the Pacers’ George Hill right out of the air as Hill tried to dump the ball into the hoop. James did more than just control the shot — he had volleyball-like spiking action going on.
Alas, Hill and the Pacers would get the last...
